NewsKlopp provides fitness update on Alisson, Gomez and Jota

Jürgen Klopp has provided an update on the fitness of Alisson Becker, Joe Gomez and Diogo Jota.

All three players were left out of the squad for Friday’s pre-season tie against Crystal Palace in Singapore, with the manager reporting issues for both Alisson and Jota.

Gomez’s absence was more precautionary, however, said Klopp.

“Diogo is a concern. With Diogo it’s a muscle again,” he told Liverpoolfc.com ahead of kick-off versus the Eagles at Singapore National Stadium.

“Joe, no. Joe is just a precaution and not any kind of risk-taking is worth it. He is really good in the pre-season so far; he felt a little bit here and there so we said, ‘OK, then he is out.’

“Ali is not cool as well; it will not be too long but each day Ali is not involved is already too long, to be honest.”
